This year we have run a wide range of profile and fund raising events, with the now annual Jazz Night in July, the Swimarathon (organised by the Rotary Club of Bury St Edmunds) and the popular Race Night in Haverhill.
We are also currently selling tickets for a Balloon Ride to raise funds – see here for details Balloon fundraiser – Suffolk West Citizens Advice (suffolkwestcab.org.uk)
We are grateful to the local businesses in Haverhill and Bury St Edmunds who have supported our Race Night and Jazz Night.
The businesses include: Ashtons Legal, Whitings LLP, Bluesys, Rees Pryer Ltd, Bedfords, Peasgood and Skeates, Hackett Griffiths LLP, 1 Accounts, Abbeygate Cinema, Preview Properties, Fairhurst Menuhin & Co Solicitors and The Epicentre
We have attended local events across West Suffolk and East Cambridgeshire to raise awareness of our services and how people can access support. These include the Dementia Awareness event (organised by Jo Churchill MP) and Let’s Talk Money (organised by Suffolk County Council and West Suffolk Council) and also the Christmas Lights switch on.
Our thanks go to Brandon Town Council for supporting us with accommodation within the Town Council offices.
We are also supported by many parish councils via donations and Suffolk County Councillors via their locality budgets and have also had donations from Churchgate Sinfonia and Helions Bumpstead Harvest Supper.
